Charming Spots I Love!
For all my local readers and those just passing on through Florida, I thought I would share some of my most favorite spots. Some of which I visit regularly, or just happen to stumble upon in my wanderings.
Found a wonderful paint and finish supplier down here in South Florida! A couple of days ago my sister and I went on a fabulous adventure to TLC Design Studio. Seems I have peeked her own artistic itch with all the re fabs I have been creating, and now she really wants to create a few of her own….with my help.
Paint And Finish Candy Store, TLC Design Studios
My Sister really wanted to see some of Annie Sloan’s colors hands on. I found the best little Annie Sloan Stockist in S Fl today! After a Google search we hopped in the van and headed down to Oakland Park, with the help of a trusty android navigation app of course. – I get lost in Ft Lauderdale!
Anyway…we mosey on in to TLC Design Studio and what a treat! Not only do they carry Annie’s whole line, but they carry the lines Beautiful, and Artisan Enhancements for creating additional finishes. Let me tell you… we were like two kids in a candy store!!!
Victoria, the studio overseer was a total doll….she really spent time with us discussing different techniques, finishes, waxes, glazes, and color combinations we had a blast!
I would love to apprentice under her just to learn her artistic techniques, simply…fabulous! The shots I took does no justice to the works displayed.
Hopefully I will run into her on my next visit that would be a treat, because we will be back…. for sure. We left with tons of new information and bags of supplies to play with.
I love a\Annie’s crackling medium, look at the tiny porcelain like crackling it creates!
So if you’re in South Florida and are hankering to get your hands on Annie Sloan’s Chalk Paint, brushes, inspiring books, finished pieces, Annie approved complementary enhancing finishes, or to learn about techniques – yes they offer workshops too! Hop on over to TLC Design Studio in Oakland Park..it’s definitely worth the drive!

Love this jem of a shoppe, very professional, well put together place. I just wish they offered some type of milk paint to try out.
